barbarian bandit
25 October 2016 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

It's 440 A.D. A weaken Roman empire is split in two. In central Europe, brothers Attila and Bleda are the new rulers after the death of King Ruga. The Western Roman Emperor bribes the brothers with gold and political prisoners. The brothers set their vast army from various races to loot the Eastern Empire with new siege weapons. After agreeing to a new treaty, the Huns return back across the Danube. Bleda is killed and Attila as sole ruler goes back to face the entire Eastern army. After a tough victory, Attila marches all the way to the walls of Constantinople where the Eastern Romans plan an assassination attempt. With the East bled dry, Attila heads west with an army of 35 thousand against Roman general Flavius Aëtius.

The story may be too much to fit into fifty minutes. This could be an epic TV series. It spans too many years. This is also notable for newcomer director Gareth Edwards. In the end, Attila is portrayed as nothing more than a barbarian bandit who is only driven by gold and pillage. The action and CGI fills a large part of the episode.
